    Abstract :

    Digital Watermarking is a technology used for the copyright protection of digital applications. Watermarking is a concept of embedding a special symbol, watermark, into an electronic document so that a given piece of copyright information is permanently tied to the data. It is an effective way to protect copyright of multimedia data even after its transmission. In recent years image watermarking techniques are grown-up. In this science era with the development of technology and internet, the protection and authentication of data is essential. Watermarking techniques provide solution to this problem. QR code being so versatile because of its structural flexibility that it leads to so many diverse field for research such as increasing data capacity, security applications such as different kinds of watermarking . We have used QR code as cover image and as secret image to protect it from other users. This paper is representing a new watermarking technique with QR code to protect the secret image by using DWT and Counterlet Transform. In the method described here the image is first encrypted in random matrix, then it is invisibly watermarked in cover image and no information about the secret image and cover image is needed for extraction of secret image, so it more secure. Counterlet Transform is advance technique and its performance is higher than DWT for water mark embedding and extraction.
